When police try to pull over an individual and that individual does not comply, that person may face charges related to fleeing or evading. If police do eventually get the driver to comply and believe there are additional crimes involved, they may pursue other charges as well. A recent incident in Tennessee involved a former county sheriff who, according to authorities, would not pull over and now faces DUI charges related to the incident.
The incident took place on a Saturday night as police reportedly tried to the pull over the former sheriff. Police say he took off, and the officer lost track of him. They say he was spotted speeding again, and a chase ensued. The chase reportedly reached speeds that were registered as over 115 mph.
